March Madness

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

In celebration of AVENUE’s March issue, cover stars Chris Benz and Mickey Sumner (along with our very own Peter Davis) hosted a party at JIMMY atop the James hotel.

Benz, still donning the technicolor hair (he couldn’t be cuter) and Sumner, with her welcoming smile, mingled with a crowd of New York’s uber-chic. As AVENUEinsider looked around the room, it seemed that every fashion A-lister–whether they supply the best clothes or wear the best clothes (or both!)–was there.

Sumner, along with other beauties such as Mary Alice Stephenson, Kate Schelter, Julie Macklowe, Jenna Lyons and Eugenia Gonzalez Ruiz-Olloqui showed up looking fab- proving worthy of our seriously selective list of “New York’s 39 most stylish women” (though we never doubted!).

Other fashion-forward party-goers sipping JIMMY’s specialty cocktails (including an appropriately named champagne mixer: Chanel No. 9) included AVENUE’s January covergirl Hannah Bronfman, Becka Diamond, Brad Goreski, Kristian Laliberte, Meredith Ostrom, Natalie Obradovich, Ally Hilfiger, “Mad Men” costume designer Janie Bryant, Michael Bastian, Hanuk Hanuk, Joey Jalleo, Francesco Clark, Lesley Schulhof, Scott Lipps, and the list goes on and on and on…and of course, so did the fun.

We are thrilled with the turn out. A big thanks to all those who supported!
